We’re delighted to welcome once of Scotland’s leading dance companies for a double bill of contemporary dance – Plan B is a charity that aims to inspire, support and lead people to achieve their full potential.


Tantalus (solo)

Performed and choreographed by Neil Joseph Price (Winner, Best Dance Performance, Sunday Helard Culture Awards 2017).

Like Tantalus, the Greek mythological figure who was made to stand in a stream beneath a tree – the fruit always out of reach, the water receding when he bent to drink – the piece explores the emotional journey for a man pulled in conflicting directions, whilst seeking his own independence and fulfilment.

With specially commissioned music by Shooglenifty’s Quee MacArthur!


A Pair of Genes (Duet)

This new, witty dance theatre duet, choreographed by Frank McConnell with original music written by David Trouton, explores how our invisible genetic make-up contributes to a sense of identity. Frank and Neil are related by blood but one exhibits an additional chromosome in DNA analysis. With the speed of technology ever increasing, the show also explores the gradual, worldwide, de-population in recent years of people with Down Syndrome.
